Celebration on Public Mass Resumes at Resurrection
Resurrection Parish would like to welcome you back to Mass!
Our goal is to create a safe and prayerful Mass for all involved. The Sunday obligation is dispensed until September 6th but we realize some are longing to return to Mass. The Archdiocese encourages those older than 65, with a compromised health system, or caring for the sick to not attend Mass. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should also not attend Mass.
The Archdiocese has asked that we limit attendance to 25% of the church's capacity to adhere to social distancing requirements. We ask that attendees wear a mask at all times, sit 6 feet away from other participants (you are welcome to sit with household members), and use hand sanitizer as you enter the building. Please follow the posted signs and the usher's directions to ensure your safety.
We ask that you sign up to attend Mass at our SignUp Genius link here or call the office at (734) 451-0444 so we can limit attendance.

A prayer for the sick especially those suffering from the coronavirus
Loving God, you sent your son Jesus Christ to heal the sick. We ask you to come to our aid in the midst of the coronavirus crisis that we too may experience your healing love. We ask you to heal those who are sick. Calm those who are living in fear. Be with those who have died and comfort their families. Inspire health professionals to aid them in their healing work. Guide national leaders to lead and make decisions with wisdom. Help us to always be aware of your presence as we place our trust in you. We ask this in Jesus name. Amen.
A prayer for an end to the coronavirus crisis
Loving God, we come before you in our time of need. We lay before you our concerns and fears over the spread of the coronavirus. We know that you are mightier than all our fears and that the name of Jesus is the name above all other names. We ask, in the name of Jesus, that you stop the spread of the coronavirus. In your mercy, heal those who are sick and lead those who have died into your heavenly kingdom. We ask this in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
Act of Spiritual Communion
It has long been a Catholic understanding that when circumstances prevent one from receiving Holy Communion, it is possible to make an Act of Spiritual Communion which is a source of grace. Spiritual Communion means uniting one's self in prayer with Christ's sacrifice and worshipping him in his Body and Blood.
The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. Acts of Spiritual Communion increase our desire to receive sacramental Communion and help us avoid the sins that would make us unable to receive Holy Communion worthily.
A prayer for Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there.
And unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.

VBS 2020 Update
While we will be unable to safely have an in-person VBS this summer, we plan to host an online VBS July 27-31st. The theme is Together in the Storm. The children and their families will explore the truth that God is with us in the midst of life's storms, and our Church family is with us as well!
We are working on creative skits, music, and lessons for the week, and we will formally announce VBS in the weeks to come. This free program will be about 30 minutes a day with additional opportunities for outreach and enrichment. We look forward to a different kind of VBS this year and we hope you can join us!
More updates to come!

To prepare to celebrate Pentecost on May 31, we invite you to pray this novena prayer beginning Saturday, May 23nd and ending on Pentecost Sunday, May 31st. Pentecost marks not only the coming of the Holy Spirit but the end of Resurrection's feast day(s), the 40 days of Easter.
Lord Jesus, I give you my hands to do your work.
I give you my feet to follow your way.
I give you my eyes to see as you do.
I give you my tongue to speak your words.
I give you my mind so you can think in me.
I give you my spirit so you can pray in me.
Above all, I give you my heart, so in me
you can love your father and all people.
I give you my whole self so you can work in me,
till it is you, Lord Jesus,
who lives and works and prays in me.
Come Holy Spirit. Inspire and guide your people
here at Resurrection Parish. Amen.

Pray 313 Initiative
As we all navigate in these unprecedented times, we are aware of God burdening our hearts with an urgency for the Church to lead the way in our congregations and communities. We must unceasingly pray during the Covid 19 pandemic. With so many uncertainties and rising tensions, it is more important than ever to unite as One Church in Michigan. With this united heart and purpose, we ask you to join Pray 313 Initiative. View the Pray 313 intro video on our Facebook page here.
Every day starting May 4th through May 31st, churches from all over our state will pray for 3 minutes at 3:13 PM. The 313 area code has been one of the hardest hit in our state. We will pray from 3:13-3:16 PM, which we find fitting as we all know John 3:16 unifies us as believers.
Go to our Facebook page each day at 3:13 PM to pray with a pastor from across our state. Set a daily alarm for 3:13 PM. You won't be praying alone or even only with your parish family. You'll be praying with thousands of people across the state of Michigan. Let's pray for God to heal and unite our community, our country, and our world.
Wednesday at 8:30 AM
Friday at 8:30 AM
Weekend Masses, beginning May 30

Welcome to Resurrection Parish
Join Us at Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Children's Liturgy of the Word is an opportunity for our children to enter into the Mass more fully by hearing and discussing the readings on a kid-friendly level. They are invited to learn the Mass prayers and share their own prayer petitions with this church community. Our desire is that our children will have a positive experience of the Mass and come to know the great Love of God in their lives. They will join us in church during the Offertory and will participate in the Eucharist celebration. All children ages 4-~10 are welcome and there is no need to sign up. Just come when you are able! Parents may accompany younger children if you desire. We will offer Children’s Liturgy each Sunday at 11 am Mass. Don’t forget we also offer a nursery at 11 am Mass for children 6 months to 4 years old. Check us out and help your children engage more fully in the Mass celebration!
We are looking for ushers (No leading required- just a teen or adult who is willing to help with crowd control. Community service hours are available for teens.) We are also looking for a few leaders and will give you all the resources needed to enrich your faith while you bless the kids. For more info, contact Karen Hogan at [email protected]
